Hooray! Zoë Foster Blake and Hamish Blake are having another baby

Granted, we are throughly entertained and admiring of the current F-B family sitch, but another Foster Blake is pretty much like an extra scoop of ice-cream on an already awesome sundae.

Or Son-dae, even. See what we did there?

Extra scoops for life!

“Best friend pact”

Zoe broke the cheery news of baby number two last night on Instagram, in typical Foster Blake style.

It followed Beyonce’s apparently Instagram-busting pregnancy reveal around 24 hours before and Zoe was not letting that go unnoticed.

“When @beyonce and I fell pregnant at the exact same time, we were so happy. We made a best friend pact to announce the news with high-concept, oversaturated floral imagery and mismatched lingerie on the SECOND of February. But not only did my “best friend” announce her pregnancy on the FIRST of February, she added an extra baby to make sure HER announcement was more special. Unfortunately, as you can see, news of her betrayal came through mid-photo shoot, but you get the gist. #allthesinglebabies – Zoe Foster Blake”


Excitement ensued

Zoe’s Instagram followers went into a wildly excited frenzy when they heard the news.

It was in fact an unprecedented “Extreme Comment Event”, much like an “Extreme Weather Event” only with a lot more “squeee-ing” and fewer emergency services workers on standby.

Over ten thousand people commented on the pregnancy post to date, wishing the family well and encouraging their friends to come and stare at Zoe’s belly. We told you people were excited.

We’re actually not sure if Hamish piped up in the comments of his wife’s post as he often does… We got a bit cross-eyed after we’d read the first 2873 comments. (If he did, can you tell us? Okay, cool.)

UPDATE: Hamish did indeed comment on his wife’s pregnant state.

“OMG! Congrats! I had seen you begin to glow around the house but a gentleman never asks,” he wrote.

No word on the family expanding news on Hamish’s Twitter or Instagram, as yet. We’re sure something’s imminent, though.


Perfect capture

The fetching image of a glowing, serene Zoe wistfully arranging her veil was captured by Mrs White Photography.

We suggest you book her right now for your wedding/funeral/Barmitzvah because she’s on the cusp of international stardom due to her enviable ability to capture serene glowing and giant brassieres.

Zoe Foster Blake and Hamish Blake are Australia’s most beloved media mum and dad.

Their Instagram feed is a constant source of chortles, snorts and accidental cup-of-tea spitting, with followers logging in obsessively to see what Sonny did today or whether Hamish’s puns can possibly get any worse.


First family

The couple were married in 2012 and Sonny was born in 2014.

Hamish is a Logie Award winner, ridiculously successful radio and TV star and once lived on a ketchup farm*.

Zoe is an internationally acclaimed writer, cosmetics mogul and all ’round legend.

Sonny is a globally renowned lover of cats, snacks and cubbies.

Huge congrats to this ace family on their exciting news!
